ti is great if you can afford it. carbon is good too. but the vast majority of people ride aluminum and it works fine.

cabon is the most expensive, therefore when at the lbs, its the best. similar to how the size in stock is always the size that they think fits you ;)

well do you guys think a moots ti FS would be better or a carbon remedy 9.9? I'm 6'1, the guy thinks I should be on the medium they have, does that sound right? I heard some people thought steel was good too, is it better?
Really, stop it already.

damnit....no, don't think a M will fit you at 6'+...if you don't know from hanging out on here (3ooo posts plus), look at your type of riding and figure out what you need. those are two entirely different bikes.

edit:
Moots has 71.5* HA
Trek has 68*
Just to show how different they are.

You think they'd sell what has the best margin, not the highest pricetag...:thumbsup:
Naturally...which is why they want you to think carbon is the best. It'll eventually catch on that carbon bikes shouldn't cost much more than aluminum.

Carbon Fiber dust is hazardous, too:thumbsup:

Material?

Corduroy

When you pedal it makes that cool swoosh-swoosh sound.
